Trees outside houses need cutting back as they are almost touching the front of my property and are blocking out light.

Reported in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 13:13, Mon 17 June 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 3 minutes later. ref: 1663799.

Trees have not been cut back for many years and they are cutting out daylight to the property and their roots could potentially damage the fabric of the property if they are allowed to grow much larger.
